The indoor air quality at my childhood friend’s house was always terrible

I know that we were living in the south at the time where the humidity is unreal in the worst summer weather, but I still don’t understand how you can let your home get that disgusting

Many of my summer afternoons as a child were spent at one of my friends’ houses. We used to play in the woods until we got overheated and needed a break indoors. Whenever my friends came to my house, my mother would make us a plate of snacks and offer us drinks. But whenever we went over to a friend’s house, we either received scorn from their parents or total neglect. We often played video games or watched movies, and none of my friends’ parents were ever as nice and welcoming as mine. This is in part why I didn’t like to spend the night at other peoples’ houses. When you have special allergies, it’s hard to stay over at any random person’s house unless you know if their parents are going to take your allergies seriously. It wasn’t just food allergies, I also had asthma and issues with mold. It seemed like a common theme at friends houses for the indoor air to smell like an old locker room that hadn’t been properly cleaned in years. I know that we were living in the south at the time where the humidity is unreal in the worst summer weather, but I still don’t understand how you can let your home get that disgusting. Their air conditioners must have been full of mold and mildew growth, I can’t even imagine what it must have looked like inside. It’s bad when mold gets into your central air system, because from there it can propagate to every other area of your home. Between that and keeping mold spores out of your lungs, it’s important to keep it from growing in your HVAC system.
